Innovative examples of WebRTC are starting to crop up everywhere.
Have you ever taken advantage of Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN)'s Mayday feature on the Kindle in which you click to launch a video chat with a support representative? That's WebRTC. Ever streamed your Android's display to a Chromecast? WebRTC. Used the Vonage mobile app? WebRTC.
All of these services use the real-time communications tech in some shape or form, and they are far from the only examples of it in the wild. WebRTC is a truly exciting new technology that many believe could revolutionize how we communicate beyond just click-to-call.

As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
